Our Ethics

At Inward Travel, our commitment to ethical practices is at the core of our mission. We believe in the transformative power of plant medicine and the profound wisdom of indigenous tribes, and we are dedicated to ensuring that our retreats respect and honor the cultural origins and spiritual significance of these practices. Our approach to plant medicine is guided by a strong set of ethical principles that prioritize the well-being of our guests, the communities we partner with, and the environments we operate in.

Respect for Indigenous Wisdom and Culture:

We recognize that the sacred knowledge of plant medicine has been passed down through generations of indigenous tribes, and we deeply honor their wisdom, traditions, and spiritual practices. Our retreats are led by experienced healers and shamans from these indigenous communities, ensuring an authentic and respectful connection with the cultural roots of each medicine.

Fair and Equitable Partnerships:

Our collaborations with indigenous healers, shamans, and communities are based on principles of mutual respect, trust, and fairness. We ensure that our partners are fairly compensated for their invaluable expertise and contributions, and we actively support community-led projects, cultural preservation initiatives, and environmental conservation efforts in the regions where our retreats take place.

Safety and Well-being of Participants:

The safety and well-being of our guests are of the utmost importance to us. Our experienced facilitators and medical professionals closely monitor all aspects of our retreats, from the administration of plant medicines to the provision of emotional and therapeutic support. We maintain a high standard of safety and professionalism in all our offerings, ensuring that participants have a positive and transformative experience.

Sustainable and Environmentally Conscious Practices:

We are committed to preserving the environments in which our retreats take place and minimizing our ecological impact. Our retreat centers are designed with sustainability in mind, using locally sourced and eco-friendly materials wherever possible. We prioritize the use of organic, locally grown ingredients in our meals, and we support local conservation efforts to protect the natural habitats and ecosystems in the regions where we operate.

Education and Advocacy:

We believe in the importance of educating our guests and the wider public about the rich history, cultural significance, and therapeutic potential of plant medicines. Through our retreats, workshops, and community outreach efforts, we aim to raise awareness about the responsible use of these sacred practices and their potential to heal, transform, and inspire.

At Inward Travel, our ethical principles guide us in our mission to provide authentic and transformative plant medicine experiences. By upholding the integrity and wisdom of these ancient traditions, we strive to create a positive and lasting impact on the lives of our guests, the communities we partner with, and the world at large.
